The Turn of the Screw (version 2)


Published February 7, 2013


LibriVox recording of The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. Read by Elizabeth Klett.

Henry James' classic ghost story comprises the written testimony of a young governess, charged with looking after two small children at an isolated country estate, who believes they are being haunted. As the story progresses, the governess' increasingly frenetic narration provokes the question: is she insane, or are the ghosts real? (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Subject: Impressive Production
I do not believe that Henry Jame's verbose writing was really meant to be read aloud. To read it well, aloud, takes real talent in my opinion. Elizabeth Klett possesses that talent.
